Elementary Student

Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board

This is what I, a DPCDSB student who is attending St. Kevin Separate School, think about Anisha Thomas, a trustee candidate. Anisha Thomas is an intelligent, responsible, reasonable, independent, and an open-minded person. She has shown these traits through her interactions and of me knowing her. Anisha Thomas has helped me through so much. One thing she helped me to be is a better person. By that I mean she has taught me to be a strong independent woman. I believe Anisha Thomas would be a fabulous Trustee because she is passionate about making a positive change.

Secondary Student

Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board

As a tenth grade student attending St. Augustine Secondary School in Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board, I think the new trustee candidate, Anisha Thomas, would be an excellent trustee for our school board. Anisha Thomas is a great representative for the wards she’s running for because she has an abundance of experience with children, as an early childhood educator. She has experience with large groups, making public speaking and decision-making simple for her. This means she will act responsibly and reasonably when challenged or under pressure. The things Anisha Thomas wants to change and/or improve in this school board are relevant, important matters. This makes her motives much more eye-catching and gives all the more reason to vote for her. I truly believe Anisha Thomas can positively impact this school board, making helpful decisions that can improve Dufferin Peel Catholic District School Board..

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Dufferin-Peel’s Catholic schools are overseen by a board of 11 elected trustees. Trustees serve as system leaders of publicly funded education in their communities and province. They work collaboratively with their community to shape a vision for the board that is reflective of the input of parents, students and community members. Trustees advocate for excellence in education and act as role models to engender confidence in publicly funded education.
